Accessing online resources directly from content provider websites

OpenAthens allows users to access the library's licensed online resources directly from content provider websites, so long as the content provider has this feature configured on their website. Every content provider is different, but users must follow these steps to sign in:

  • Find the "Sign in" or "Login" button on the content provider's website (typically, this is located at the top right corner of the page)
  • If available, select Athens or OpenAthens as the sign in method
  • In the Find your organization search box, input Kutztown
  • Sign in through KU's Single Sign On page
